Hey everyone,

I'm pumped to be here! I've been a web designer / developer since I was in high school and decided to opt out of college to pursue a career in software / websites. That was 8 years ago, and the grind has been totally worth it.

I got this idea a while back that I wanted to get to know people like me: entrepreneurs who have become successful without a college degree. For instance, I met this girl last week who dropped out of college to open her own franchise sandwich shop. Total baddass.

So yeah, if you didn't get a degree, and you're crushing it, I'd love to meet you.

Thanks,
Paul

Hi,

I'm currently in college and had the thought of dropping out but I decided to not do it.
Although I'm with a different goal in college, I really want to learn something I can apply and am not only there for the paper to get a nice job.

I don't get the question fully. You want to meet successful people who dropped out of college? Why not successful people in general?

My opinion: "Going to college isn't a guarantee that you're going to be successful in your business and dropping out isn't either. Work hard and persistent on a business that meets the CENTS term is"

Of course I want to meet successful people -- I'm just fascinated by those who have been able to make it happen without the assistance of a degree and I would love to hear their stories.
